I wonder what today’s plant will be? Shall we take a look and see?

Aha! Today it’s a Mesemb. A hardy mesemb known colloquially as the Oscularia deltoides. Does that mean it has striangular leaves? Yes! It does mean that. Sort of.

It grows in the sandstones of South Africa, so you know it’s easy to grow. When the blooms are full and the mat-forming plant is completely covered in purple, then the butterflies go nuts.
